Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €6,400 as on Sunday Gary Collins was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 4 which wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Anna Fahey and Orla won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crottys Corner Bar.
As the playing season draws ever nearer we would ask all members both playing and ordinary to please get your membership paid as soon as possible. It can be paid to Membership Officer Pat Keane, or any Committee Member. The onus is on intending members to hand their membership fee over and players should be aware that they are not eligible to play for the club if they don’t pay their membership.
We ask that all team managers book their times for training / matches with Michael O’Donovan in advance of returning to training. Managers must notify Michael in advance if they wish to change from their allocated time.
Post Primary Schools Games
On Saturday last St.Augustine’s College continued their remarkable run of recent victories as they defeated Spanish Point in the Munster Colleges Football Final in Bansha. This victory completes a fantastic Munster Double for the Friary, an achievement all involved with the team should be enormously proud of. Similar to the hurling team the previous week there was a very strong club representation on the team with Ballinacourty players contributing 3:11 out of the 3:13 scored by the Friary. The manner in which the team fought back from eight points down with ten minutes remaining, scoring the winning goal almost five minutes into injury time, is testament to the spirit the team have shown throughout all their games this year . Again similar to last week it was wonderful to see a large number of club supporters in Bansha to support the team and see our own Tom Looby accept the trophy on behalf of this fine team. We thank the teachers who put so much work into preparing the team, and wish the team the very best of luck in this Saturday ahead of their All Ireland Hurling Semi Final against Holy Rosary, Mountbellew.
On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Eoin Kiely who was part of the Mary Immaculate College, panel who won the Fitzgibbon Cup on Saturday last.
Our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night with a jackpot of €600.
